We are pleased to have Jeff Brown, MA Psychology and Director of Compassionate Communication Center of Ohio join us for May's program.
Conflict is a natural result of people interacting and collaborating, so organizations need tools for responding to it to unlock the creative energy that gets tied up when people and ideas clash.
In many workplaces, however, the attitude about conflict is as follows: 1) there will be no conflict in this organization; 2) if there is conflict, we will suppress it or ignore it (hoping it goes away); and 3) if the conflict persists, someone will be fired (which eliminates the symptom but not the cause).
Once organizations embrace conflict as inevitable byproduct of people working together, they can learn how to harness the energy and transform it to create a workplace culture that brings out the best in people and helps the organization thrive.
In his experiential and highly engaging style, Jeff will describe simple tools that both individuals and organizations can learn to skillfully dance with conflict, and invite participants to practice these skills using real-life examples from their own lives.
